Dermatologist 's  Response
Hi Mickey how are you young one ? Pimple or Acne vulgaris is a very common skin ailment in your age ,
basically when opening of pimple is closed it is called white head ,when it is closed it is known as black head . keep few things in mind ..... 1. never try to press any acne it may cause scaring and post inflammatory hyper pigmentation or scaring 2. wash your face multiple time 3. never apply oily creams and oil over face . Consult your dermatologist if your problem doesn't resolve with preventive measures . Dr Prakash Roy
